paint it blue








i was never that obsessed or fascinated by it's origin, the process and the people behind it. only until recently after i read an article by Mary Lance who did a story on indigo. i think sri threads was another place that got me hooked, and then i saw more shibori, more boro, mottainai....it is endless! every single pieces are different, some darker and some lighter...iridescent green, blue, dark blue...

i am going to attempt a small wearable piece with habu indigo linen paper and indigo cashmere. i have not decided whether it's going to be a jacket or a pullover. who knows it might take years to finish but i know i am definitely obsessed with the color.

what is true blue?

p.s. thank you for all your lovely comments on my previous post. incase if you're curious, those are not my own designs. the linen pullover was inspired different pieces of knitwear. and the aubergine color top was designed by a talented friend - kirsten johnstone.
